Alt-Montal, Prichib

Alt-Montal was a Mother colony founded in 1805 in the Prischib area of the Taurida Governorate. The Prischib colonies were established in response to the increasing number of German immigrants arriving in the Black Sea area at Ekaterinoslave instead of Odessa. 

Initially in Alt-Montal, there were  50 families: 30 from Brandenburg, Mecklenburg and Prussian Poland, and 20 from Alsace and Baden.
